Mission Statement - De-Spinning the Pro-Taser Propaganda

Yeah right, 'Excited Delirium' my ass...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The primary purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet for my observations and analysis about tasers, taser "associated" deaths, and the behaviour exhibited by the management, employees and minions of Taser International. In general, everything is linked back to external sources, often via previous posts on the same topic, so that readers can fact-check to their heart's content. This blog was started in late-2007 when Canadians were enraged by the taser death of Robert Dziekanski and four others in a short three month period. The cocky attitude exhibited by the Taser International spokespuppet, and his preposterous proposal that Mr. Dziekanski coincidentally died of "excited delirium" at the time of his taser-death, led me to choose the blog name I did and provides my motivation. I have zero financial ties to this issue.

4th taser mode caught on video

Indio, CA - The Naked Wizard, 23-year-old Johnathan Fredrick Felch, of San Luis Obispo, was arrested around 7:15 p.m. on April 17, 2009 at the Empire Polo Fields on suspicion of being drunk in public and resisting arrest. [LINK]

No mention of public nudity being on the charge sheet.


During the arrest, Felch was tasered in the neglected 4th mode.

This detail relates to alleged false statements from Taser International's paid-for in-house "experts", and the sworn statement of George L. Kirkham in the matter of Timothy Bolander, 31, Delray Beach, Florida (TNT #90 - December 23, 2004). [LINK]

Felch happened to be running away when the taser darts hit him in the back. (Those that are tasered in the back are often those wussy and puffter taser trainees, too frightened to be tasered in the chest.)

The taser-wielding officer then pressed the taser directly into Felch's chest with the taser darts still embedded in his back and still connected to the taser.

It just so happened that Felch didn't die. If he had died, then his alleged intoxication would have provided a ready blame-the-victim excuse for his individual susceptibility.
